Phillies lead Miami 17-1 in the 4th inning.

Marlins pitcher Dillon Peters gave up 2 grand slams in the Marlins 20-1 loss to the Phillies. Not often a pitcher is allowed to stay in the game long enough to give up 2 grand slams.

Stanton went 0 for 7 with 5 Ks today. He's at .167 on the year.

He is obviously pressing. That New York media will bury him if he doesn't turn it around

Ohtani is living up to the hype after a terrible Spring.

Spring training stats mean nothing.

Yep. I remember 2001 and everyone thought Ichiro was going to be a bust after a bad spring training too. Even Sweet Lou thought he couldn't hit.

NY media spoke to a scout about Stanton

"He's just a mess," is how one scout put it. "He's jumping at everything, missing balls by a few feet and not identifying pitches. He's got great bat speed and power, but he's leaking pretty badly and pulling off the ball a lot - even with his closed stance."

 

Stanton is 7 for 42 with 20 Ks.

That's because he's trying to hit a 5-run HR every AB to live up to all the pressure and hype.
